Pennsylvania – The Snow Junkies http://www.thesnowjunkies.com Lodging, Gear, and Lift Ticket Deals for Skiers and Snowboarders Thu, 07 Mar 2013 01:32:38 +0000 en-US hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.7.7 FREE Lift Tickets to Boyce on Tuesdays http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2010/12/31/free-lift-tickets-to-boyce-on-tuesdays/ http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2010/12/31/free-lift-tickets-to-boyce-on-tuesdays/#respond Fri, 31 Dec 2010 19:56:59 +0000 http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/?p=5157 Here’s a government bailout plan we can fully support. Boyce Park in Pennsylvania has one sweet Tuesday deal:

This year, the County is offering a promotion, which will waive all lift ticket fees for the ski slopes every Tuesday throughout the season. Residents can take advantage of the only location for downhill skiing in the county.

It’s only going to save you $14 and it’s a small hill, but for those of you looking to try out snow sliding, grab some cheap rental gear and get to Boyce.

PICKS OF THE WEEK

Tuesday, Feb 10 @ Attitash, NH: A typical deal usually has a hook.  This one has zero explantion for $35 tickets all ages.  We’re not complaining.

Wednesday, Feb 11 @ Sugarbush, VT: We almost missed this one too. Bring in an empty Vitamin Water bottle and get a ½ off lift ticket.

Thursday, Feb 12 @ Sierra-at-Tahoe, CA: The final day of Snowsports week to get a $35 ticket.

Thursday, Feb 12 @ Squaw, CA: Do you live in Truckee-Reno area? $25 tickets for locals.

Friday, Feb 13 @ Sugarbush, VT: Here’s some good luck on an unlucky day.  Tickets are only $14.

Saturday, Feb 14 @ Loveland, CO: Get hitched and get a free lift ticket at Loveland. Twofer $56.  All you got to is get married in a mass ceremony.

Monday, Feb 15 @ Winter Park & Copper, CO: According to the site, the Phillips 66 Buy One, Get One Free is valid today. We’re not sure if you believe that.

Tue-Thu, Feb 16-18 @ Killington, VT: The most irritating deal we found this week. Buy a ticket on 2/9 for $50 or on 2/10 for $55 or on 2/11 for $60 and go skiing 2/16-20. Makes sense, right?

NEW DEALS THIS WEEK

West Coast: Squaw Valley, CA feels your pain state workers. $30 ticket on the first and third Friday until that crazy old budget gets fixed.

2 for 1 New England: Beer promos are the best promos. Drink some tasty Otter Creek, get a midweek twofer at Mad River Glen, Bromley, Bolton, or Jay Peak.
